Absolutely love this place.
The decor is amazing and the staff very polite and friendly.
Finally had a meal there for the first time last weekend and the food was prompt, very reasonably priced and delicious.
Try to get around to here whenever I'm in Birmingham - well worth a visit.

“Pre concert dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2014 via mobile

What a hidden gem. Beautiful unusual surroundings and we used voucher cloud to get 20% off of our bill. I totally recommend the lamb cutlets. Absolutely wonderful. Lovely staff too. Drinks expensive but you pay for the surroundings and I think that it's worth it. Will be back.

“Excellent Friday lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

This is an exellent restaurant/bar and the food was delicious (as was the wine). I had the pulled pork burger with chips which was very flavour some. Wouldn't hesitate to go back although would recommend you book a table as it does get quite busy.

When booking request a table in the restaurant as opposed to the bar as it is a lot lighter.

Enjoy.

“One of my favourite bars”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014

This is without a doubt one of my favourite bars in Birmingham, cosy atmosphere, always welcoming and lovely staff and good prices too!

The bar food is incredible and good for a snack - I haven't tried the actual restaurant however.

Beware though it can get extremely busy and if it is that busy it might be best to avoid - no where to sit or move and it takes away from the charm.
